beautiful weekend getaway
Nov 2021
TV free comfort, quiet beauty. The breakfast was delicious, the views from the rooms and common areas are vary from breathtaking to merely inspiring. Trails in all directions, museums a short distance away. Staff is lovely and accommodating.

Bauhaus beauty
Jul 2021 • Couples
We loved our stay here. So many stunning things - the unsurpassed view of Mt. Greylock and surroundings; the beautiful Bauhaus-style house and accompanying mid-century furnishings; or the lovely unobtrusive trustees running the property. Add in the multiple garden sculptures or the beautiful, well-maintained gardens in which to enjoy the views, or the mini-hikes around the 300 acres, there literally is something for everyone. But especially if you appreciate a mid-century setting tastefully and carefully done, that is so welcoming, then this is the place to stay.

B&B owned by The Trustees
Oct 2020
Some things don’t change- the views, the walking trails and the unique decor. Covid changes others- requiring tests from many guests and no
community table at breakfast. Some things might be considered problematic e.g. unreliable hvac controls, a quirky shower and the drive of several miles to downtown Williamstown. And it is not inexpensive. But we keep going back in any case because it is special.
Ps on the way in look Carefully for Sloan Rd.

Got a full dose of greenery and quiet
Aug 2020
We were lucky to have an excellent view from a large deck paired with good weather.

Hiking paths were well marked. Staff was accomodating and relaxed considering the protocols we all followed.

Woke up to an ample breakfast with a mountain vista.

Room was very comfortable.

Good place to take a walk!

Here as a hiker not as a guest. Nice scenic area and plenty to relax and unwind with on your walk. Great part of a day trip or overnight.

Good views and trails
Aug 2019
I am a Trustees of Reservations member, and chose to take a side trip to Field Farm while I was recently travelling in the Berkshires. I found the trails and property to be lovely, with some formal garden areas, plus forest, trails, and a pond. The Field Farm Guest House is an interesting piece of architecture which I had wanted to see, as is the "Folly", a mid-century home on the site. Unfortunately, there was a sign on the inn's door that it was closed for the weekend due to a private party inside. In addition, the Saturday tour of the inside of the Folly may or may not have been available....there was no one around to ask. If you want some good trail hiking this is the place for you but if you want to stay at the Field Farm Guest House or tour the Folly, call ahead. I was disappointed that I didn't get to see the inside of these supposedly interesting structures. My love of art was a bit satisfied by some wonderful outdoor sculptures around the grounds.

Visited to see Doug Aiken's NEW HORIZON
Jul 2019
Had planned to see Doug Aiken's New Horizon, but the weather was uncooperative - too windy to inflate and control the reflective hot air balloon. But the other sites at the location are worth investigating for their historical value. And it would have been fun to have a picnic. I would return in the fall as fall colors erupt - the natural setting is very impressive

A great walk through field and forest with unique caves to add to our geologic knowledge
Aug 2019
Be sure not to miss the cave portion of the walk where you will see a different kind of cave as streams disappear into holes in the ground leading to limestone channels. I am told in the winter ice ponds are formed waiting for the spring thaw. Wonderful views across the fields to mountains in the distance. Easy hike.

Hidden hiking
Jul 2019 • Couples
Many people know this as s stylish, mid-century modern B&B, but it's also wonderful for moderate hiking. It has several miles of trails, and the variety distinguishes it. Roughly a third are in and around wetlands; a third are around beautiful, very large hay fields and meadows; and a third in uplands. Because of the grasses, be sure to have tick repellant, and in July or August, go early or late in the day since it gets hot in the sun.

Pleasant Walk
Jul 2019 • Couples
We walked four of the trails at this former farm that is now owned by the Trustees of Reservations. The Pond trail is short and sweet. The North Trail travels through both fields and woods. There are some beautiful views. We also walked the Oak Loop and Caves Trail which are in the wooded section of the property. The three caves are less caves than locations for the water to flow underground. The Oak trail was difficult to traverse in some places due to overgrowth and wet areas. Be sure to use bug spray and check for ticks as you'll be in some tall grass. We also saw a fawn which was nice. And there are some outdoor art pieces that are interesting. I'd characterize this as an easy walk.
